My Art is Flying to Italy!

I am so honored (and VERY excited!!!) my art, Up, up, up into a New Year, was selected to be apart of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) Bologna Illustration Gallery (BIG) at the Book Fair in Bologna Italy. The art will be on display from March 24 - 27.  The Bologna Children's Book Fair is the leading professional fair for children's books in the world. Since 1963, it is held yearly for four days in March or April in Bologna, Italy.

Big congratulations Sharon, this is indeed something to celebrate. The exhibitions are such a wonderful part of the book fair, and seen by so many people. Getting work accepted is a huge achievement.

You should shout out about this on PBAA's good news day :)
